Pirates of the Caribbean fame actor Johnny Depp is currently in the news but for all the wrong reasons. Yes, you heard it right. The actor made headlines a few months ago owing to his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard. Now, with all things clear, fans of Depp heaved a sigh of relief thinking he will be back on his career path soon. However, things seem to have gone the other way now.
The Cancelled Concert
Many are aware of the fact that Johnny Depp also has a band named the Hollywood Vampires. This same band sparked controversy recently as they cancelled their concert which was supposed to be held in Slovakia. The reason was reportedly cited to be illness. However, fans were left furious after having seen a few photos where Johnny Depp can be seen drinking allegedly hours after having cancelled the concert. If that was not enough, this is the fourth time that the band has cancelled a concert. This incident has left the fans skeptical with many questioning the validity of the actor’s ‘illness.’

The Hollywood Vampires
The Hollywood Vampires’ highly anticipated gig in Slovakia faced an unexpected setback as safety concerns emerged due to the venue’s incomplete construction. Various sources reported that the band had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event, disappointing both the band members and their dedicated fans.
